The Vermont Marble Company Goes To War
The Vermont Marble Company Goes to War” is another in a series of articles written by Mary Fregosi about the Company. She opens this account with the Company having completed one of their largest project, the Jefferson Memorial in 1941, and no future project in sight.
The solution arrived at was to switch to metal work and participate in war production. This is the story of its conversion; the difficulties in finding workers due to the draft; in retirees returning to work; and for the first time including women in the work force.
The culmination of this effort resulted in the Company receiving the Army-Navy “E Award for excellence, a proud day with further honors in the future. As in her previous articles Ms. Fregosi tells a fascinating tale accompanied by a variety of illustrations.
